Review by ThePhanastasio

ThePhanastasio To say that this is one of the best Phish shows ever would be a tremendous overstatement, but this show is certainly a high point in Phish 3.0.

Set one contained two shows which haven't been played in some time right off the bat. They were fun, up, and well-played. This theme was followed for much of the first set. Very fun, good song selection, and all four members shone in their respective roles.

Set two started off with a strong Wilson which segued into Meatstick. Meatstick is one of those songs which you either love or hate, and for those in the former category, I'll refrain from stating my real opinion. I will say that it was one of the more enjoyable versions of Meatstick I've heard, and that should suffice. Saw It Again took the jamming in a dark direction which has been lacking in quite a few shows this tour, and was a pleasant surprise and a stark contrast from the first set. Piper began to take the show on a more upbeat turn, but after segueing into Ghost, there were definitely dark and dramatic tones being adopted by the boys. Jumpin' Jack Flash was transitioned into beautifully, a cover which was both completely unexpected and well-executed. When it segued back into Saw It Again, the darker tones came back. Contact was well-played, and the YEM was quite enjoyable during this show, if I do say so myself. The encore of Fire wasn't the best the band has played, but it was a very nice end to a really killer show. 8/10.
